This gorgeous antique Garnet cluster ring has been exquisitely handcrafted from seven stunning rose cut Garnets and a rare articulated Gold band. In all our time purveying fine jewels we've never seen another like it! (It was possibly designed as a dress ring to wear over gloves!)
The deep earthy red Garnets are immaculate, and twinkle with charm and romance you can only get from antique jewellery.
The way these rose cut facets catch the light is so striking; creating stark geometric areas of light and shadow.
This antique Garnet cluster ring is simple but characterful, pretty but not girly, and charmingly understated.

EXCELLENT: This wonderful and unusual antique Garnet cluster ring is in perfect condition throughout. The gemstones are all nice and clean and held firmly in place, and the 9ct Gold band and setting have no visible wear. It's rare to see antique rings of this age in such good condition, and this one is pure joy to look at! Each rose cut Garnet sparkles with an intensity which you don't get with modern-day Garnets.
The Garnets have some light surface scuffs commensurate with their age but nothing that takes away any of the beauty of the piece. One of the surrounding Garnets also has the tiniest nibble to one of its edges but it's largely hidden underneath a claw. All in all a lovely antique ring that's ready to be admired!
